Bishop’s Monthly Letter
My dear Fathers, Let me first of all wish you, our beloved faithful and Religious, a very happy Easter, full of the choicest blessings of the Risen Saviour. We have just recovered from the terrible tragedy of the unexpected incidents of violence that took place in the Kandy district three weeks ago. We thank God, that with the measures taken by the government, as well as the appeals of Religious leaders and the vigilance of the police and the armed forces, a much more disastrous conflagration has been avoided. The timely action taken by the President and the Government helped very much. However, the consequences of the tragic events affected the children’s schooling as well as the very poor people specially the daily wages earners were deprived of their livelihood due to declaration of emergency and the hours of curfew. The whole country realized that there is no other way except to forge an authentic Sri Lankans identity by respecting all citizens of the land whatever the Religions they belong to and other ethnic and linguistic differences. The media both of the public sector as well as the private sector acted very responsibly in giving ample coverage to the appeals of the Religious leaders as well as Law enforcement authorities. The damage, however done to the good name of the country will not be easily regained. This kind of violence will undoubtedly discourage investors and tourists who are so necessary for the ongoing development of the country. The need for constant vigilance and building up of groups at the grass root levels to bring about greater understanding among Sri Lankans of different Religions and ethnicities has become urgent. Let us do our best to link hands with local Religious leaders to form interreligious groups to promote peace and harmony at the local level. It is very easy to forget the tragic events once peace has been restored. However, now we realize that interreligious dialogue and cooperation on an ongoing basis are essential to prevent any future repetitions of what happened and bring about understanding, peace and unity. Please note that the Vocation Sunday will be celebrated on 22nd April 2018. Let us celebrate this Sunday with the help of the literature that is being forwarded to all the parishes. The collection taken up on this Sunday will be utilized for the maintenance of three seminaries namely Ampitiya, Jaffna and Kalutara. It is our experience of the past couple of years, that our people have responded generously to our appeal. The fund has helped in meeting the annual deficit of the budget of our seminaries. All of us have had our priestly formation in Kalutara and National Seminary and few also in Jaffna seminary. Let us therefore, do our very best to celebrate Vocation Sunday in a meaningful way, animating our faithful to contribute generously to this fund. Let us thank God for deacon Harshan Miranda who will be ordained a Priest on 5th April at St. Anthony’s Cathedral, Kandy at 3.00 p.m. All priests are invited to be present at the Ordination to concelebrate and welcome the new priest into our presbyterium. Our congratulations and prayerful wishes to him for a very fruitful and happy priestly life and ministry in our diocese. With renewed wishes for a joyous Easter season, I remain.
Yours devotedly in the Lord,

(Pope St. John Paul II)
Happy Easter , Alleluia !!!
Five Ways to Celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ Last night Passover began. While Jews remember their exodus from the bondage of Egypt, we Jesusfollowers remember our exodus from the bondage of sin. The Bible gives us this season. It helps keep our minds renewed, our faith-culture strong, and our gospel free from becoming an overly-familiar cliché. In other words, this season calls us to look with fresh vision and renewed wonder at the story of Jesus the Messiah. The story of Jesus is the most important story in human history. It is our story. It proclaims that Jesus has conquered our greatest and most vicious enemies. Jesus did not come to establish a superficial kingdom by gathering an army and marching against Rome. (One Day a similar march will in fact occur. But first things first.) That would not have been a real victory. It would only have scratched the devil’s skin and left us in eternal bondage. We needed Jesus to achieve a victory over the powers of sin deeply entrenched in the human heart, and over the invisible forces of evil that inspire universal wickedness. We needed Jesus to renew the human race and reboot human history. Only he could do this. No other human (or god) could legitimately even go to such a battle and engage these forces, let alone defeat them. Young Jesus entered human history as the chief Man. Born of a virgin and victorious over temptation, he qualified to suffer our death. As the Son of Man, the ultimate, representative human, he faced the deepest rebellion and most profound sorrows in the human heart. Paul tells us that he “descended into the lowest parts of the earth.” This took unfathomable love, humility, and courage. No man could overcome these invisible beasts from the outside. It had to be done from the inside. So like Jonah’s fish, Jesus allowed the monster to consume him. That is what makes his victory so complete, so utterly definitive. Jesus rose… from the dead. Death has been defeated from the inside out. That means – in the most comprehensive way possible before God, humans, angels, demons, and all of creation – Jesus is King. That is the gospel of the kingdom. And when we believe it, we freely receive his new life. What grace is this! What a gift! That is the glory of Jesus’ resurrection. Citizens of such a kingdom and recipients of such a gift should really celebrate. Here are five ways to do that: First, praise the Lord. The song of God’s gift should fill our mouths and our hearts.Take some time this weekend to find – or compose – songs that articulate this great gospel and its great hero. Gather together and sing with hearts full of gratitude and awe at all things Genesis and Exodus in Christ Jesus. There is no higher praise. O sing to the Lord a new song, For He has done wonderful things, His right hand and His holy arm have gained the victory for Him. The Lord has made known His salvation; He has revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations. He has remembered His lovingkindness and His faithfulness to the house of Israel; All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. (Psa 98:1-3) Second, walk in newness of life. It is one thing to sing about the resurrection. It is quite another to give it living testimony through a life victorious over sin. But that is the great obligation of the new covenant (yes, I said obligation – see Rom 6:12). Celebrate the resurrection by reading and re-reading Rom 6. Do what it says – it is a very practical exhortation. Get together with some spiritual comrades and confess your sins to one another. Pray for one another. Stab every habitual sin in the heart with the truth of Jesus’ resurrection. Then encourage one another daily to replace such sin with the power of new, divine life. Our risen Jesus is worthy of such honor.
Third, attach hope to any situation. The gospel summarized above means God can enter even the darkest and most hopeless situation with you, and come out on the other side with renewed vigor. We honor the resurrection of Jesus Christ when we exercise our right to hope. Our God brings new life out of any death. Confess such truth over the grave you face. Jesus already walks with you through the valley of the shadow of death. But in due course, when you step together over the valley’s border, you will rise to a new place of divine life. Jesus is the risen King. Trust him now. In him, we always have hope. Fourth, celebrate the Lord’s Supper. Jesus gave his church a renewed Passover meal (Matt 26:17-30). But what is so important and powerful about sharing an actual meal centered on the Lord? Jesus rose from the dead, not only to save individuals, but to create a spiritual family. A sacred, joyful meal creates and sustains real family fellowship around a common salvation (1 Cor 10:17). It is a (spiritual) family meal. It is also the most poignant occasion to hear from one another in the Spirit (1 Cor 11:17-14:40). That is the kind of celebration that honors the Lord’s resurrection (1 Cor 11:26). Such a meal also gives vivid memorial to the new covenant. The meal’s focus on the courses of bread and cup helps us to remember what Jesus did for us. But it also helps us to feel the reality of his gift of new life. We feast on a meal. We eat the bread and drink the wine. They get ingested into our systems. Messiah is in us – in our individual bodies, and in our church bodies. That is the spirit of the new covenant. The renewed Passover, the Lord’s Supper, recalls this glorious truth in vivid, physical ways, and in the context of a family meal. Fifth, work hard in the Lord’s service. Take some time to read 1 Cor 15. Jesus’ resurrection means that we will also be resurrected. And it means we will inherit an eternal kingdom. God will put away all of his enemies, revive creation, and become “all in all.” Paul calls this reality “hope” (Rom 8:20). Such a hope for our future reward should inspire us to devote ourselves to the Lord’s work, now (1 Cor 15:58; see also 7:29-31). Some teachers today strongly de-emphasize the future resurrection. They say we should not focus on the future. We should focus rather on the present work of the kingdom. This sounds good on the surface, especially in response to (or in reaction to) the old escapist mentality. But it is unbiblical. Of course we should bring God’s kingdom to earth today, the way Jesus and the apostles did. But according to the NT, we cannot do that the way they did without putting healthy emphasis on the Lord’s return and the age to come. The NT frequently proclaims the Lord’s return and our resurrection as motivation for holiness and devoted service in the present time. We should embrace that. Jesus’ resurrection teaches us to live for the coming age, now. We do not need traditional church ministry positions to serve the Lord. We can serve his eternal interests anywhere. But we do need frequent encouragement to do so. Remember, then, that we celebrate the Lord’s resurrection by anticipating his return and our resurrection. “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Easter Message of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference in Sri Lanka – 2018 –
At Easter we bring the Liturgical Year to its climax proclaiming Jesus of Nazareth as the Risen Lord and Saviour. We let the words of the two heavenly messengers resound in our ears, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; He has risen.” (Luke 24: 5). We rejoice that the Lord Jesus by His Resurrection conquered sin and death and gave a new hope for us to live on and to share in His own Resurrection. Easter invites us to die to sin and selfishness and begin a new life in Christ. At Easter we also thank God for the gift of our faith in the Person of Jesus, the Christ. God has bestowed upon us this unique gift of our faith in God’s only begotten Son in order to experience His loving mercy towards us. In return we too are called to radiate God’s Love and Mercy to others in our day to day life. The joyful season of Easter invites us to deepen our knowledge of Jesus and to be renewed in the awareness that the Risen Saviour is alive in our midst. Our faith in the Risen Saviour gives us comfort as He journeys and accompanies us (Cf. Luke 24:13-32) amidst the uncertainties, trials and challenges life consists of. Easter reminds us that Christ does not abandon His flock and that He is always with us. This becomes the root cause of Christian joy. The Risen Saviour appeared to His disciples and granted them His gift of peace. Let us invoke the same gift of peace as we strive to foster peace through reconciliation in our country. We cannot forget that true peace is a result of justice. It is the responsibility of those who govern our country to establish a true democratic framework where all citizens irrespective of their caste, creed or colour are able to live in dignity and freedom. We as a nation are living in the midst of socio–political uncertainties. Peoples needs have to be addressed with more understanding and sensitivity. We see the poor struggling and crying out asking for the basic requirements in life. There is also an ever widening gap between the rich and the poor in our Motherland. Amidst the sky rocketing prices of consumer items, day‐to‐day life is being made more and more burdensome to the poor. Our Christian discipleship always invites us to care for those in need. It is our duty to recognize the face of Jesus in those who suffer. Our special concern should be directed to children who are impoverished as they are exposed to drugs and other social evils. May they recognize in and through us the joy and the beauty of believing in Jesus and of becoming His disciples. May we become the agents of the Peace and Reconciliation that the Risen Saviour communicated to His disciples. We wish all our faithful and our readers the Joy and the Peace of the Risen Saviour.

• “The Gospel cannot explain the resurrection; it is the resurrection which alone explains the Gospels” (John S Whales).
• Christ’s resurrection is not only the best proof of immortality, but we have no evidence of immortality without it.” (Augustus H. Strong)
• We are not immortal because Christ rose from the dead. Christ rose from the dead because He and we are immortal
• Christianity is in its very essence a resurrection religion. The concept of resurrection lies at its heart. If you remove it, Christianity is destroyed (John R.W.Stott).
• Christianity is essentially a religion of resurrection (James Stewart)
• The resurrection of Christ is the Amen of all His promises (John Boys ).
• We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience ( Teilhard de Chardin).
• When Jesus went back to heaven His desk was clear (John Blanchard).
• Jesus rolled away the stone from Jesus’ tomb, not to let the living Lord out, but to let unconvinced outsiders in (Grey Barn house)
• In the resurrection morning we shall thank God for every storm (J.C. Ryle)
• Of all the things that will surprise us in the resurrection morning, this, I believe, will surprise us most: that we did not love Christ more before we died (J.C. Ryle).
• The nature of divine goodness is not only to open to those who knock, but also to cause them to knock and ask.
• The men who have done the most for God in this world have been early on their knees.
• The strongest knees are those which bend most easily.
• In God’s name I beseech you, let prayer nourish your soul as your meals nourish your body.
• The man who kneels to God can stand up to anything.
• Most of modern man’s troubles stem from too much time on his hands and not enough on his knees.
• Mountains can be climbed with the knees bent.
• Prayer less pews makes powerless pulpits.
• The church upon its knees would bring heaven upon the earth.
• If I could Christ praying for me in the next room, I would not fear a million enemies. Yet distance makes no difference. He is praying for me.
• The great leaders of the Bible were not leaders because of brilliancy of thought, or because they were exhaustless in resources, or because of their magnificent culture or native endowments, but because by the power of prayer, they could command the power of God.
• A lot of kneeling keep us in good standing.
• We should begin to pray before we kneel down and we should not cease when rise up.

An Empty Tomb, Because Jesus Is Alive!
What a shock it is for the women to discover what appears to be an empty burial place! Mary Magdalene runs off to “Simon Peter and to the other disciple, for whom Jesus had affection” —the apostle John. (John 20:2) However, the other women at the tomb see an angel. And inside the memorial tomb is another angel, who is “clothed in a white robe.”—Mark 16:5. One of the angels tells them: “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus who was executed on the stake. He is not here, for he was raised up, just as he said. Come, see the place where he was lying. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he was raised up from the dead, for look! he is going ahead of you into Galilee.” (Matthew 28:5-7) So “trembling and overwhelmed with emotion,” the women run to report to the disciples.—Mark 16:8. By now, Mary has found Peter and John. Breathlessly, she reports: “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.” (John 20:2) Peter and John take off running. John is faster and reaches the tomb first. He peers into it and sees the bandages, but he remains outside. When Peter arrives, he goes right in. He sees the linen cloths and the cloth used to wrap Jesus’ head. John now enters, and he believes Mary’s report. Despite what Jesus said earlier, neither of them understands that he has been raised up. (Matthew 16:21) Puzzled, they head home. But Mary, who has come back to the tomb, remains there. Meanwhile, the other women are on their way to tell the disciples that Jesus has been raised. While they are running to do so, Jesus meets them and says: “Good day!” They fall at his feet and ‘do obeisance to him.’ Then Jesus says: “Have no fear! Go, report to my brothers so that they may go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”—Matthew 28:9, 10. Earlier, when the earthquake occurred and the angels appeared, the soldiers at the tomb “trembled and became as dead men.” After recovering, they entered the city and “reported to the chief priests all the things that had happened.” The priests then consulted with elders of the Jews. The decision was made to bribe the soldiers to hide the matter and to claim: “His disciples came in the night and stole him while we were sleeping.”—Matthew 28:4, 11, 13. Roman soldiers can be put to death if they fall asleep at their post, so the priests promise: “If this [their lie about having been asleep] gets to the governor’s ears, we will explain the matter to him and you will not need to worry.” (Matthew 28:14) The soldiers take the bribe and do what the priests say. Thus the false story of Jesus’ body being stolen spreads widely among the Jews. Mary Magdalene is still grieving at the tomb. Stooping forward to look into it, she sees two angels in white! One sits at the head of where Jesus’ body had been lying and the other at the foot. “Woman, why are you weeping?” they ask. Mary answers: “They have taken my Lord away, and I do not know where they have laid him.” Turning around, Mary sees someone else. He repeats the angels’ question and adds: “Whom are you looking for?” Thinking that he is the gardener, she says: “Sir, if you have carried him off, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.”—John 20:13-15. Actually, Mary is speaking to the resurrected Jesus, but at the moment she does not recognize him. However, when he says, “Mary!” she knows that it is Jesus, recognizing him by the familiar way he speaks to her. “Rabboni!” (meaning, “Teacher!”), Mary exclaims joyfully. Yet, afraid that he is about to ascend to heaven, she grabs hold of him. Hence, Jesus urges her: “Stop clinging to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father and to my God and your God.’”—John 20:16, 17. Mary runs to the place where the apostles and other disciples are gathered. She tells them: “I have seen the Lord!” adding her account to what they have heard from the other women. (John 20:18) Yet, the reports ‘seem like nonsense to them.’—Luke 24:11.

Heart Disease Warning Signs
Severe chest pain may be an obvious sign something is wrong. But heart disease can be deadly because many people don’t recognize some early signs and symptoms and they don’t seek treatment until it may be too late. Heart symptoms may not always be explicit so do not ignore any potential cardiac warning signs. Some warning signs not to ignore include: shortness of breath, heartburn, muscle soreness, painful hiccups, neck or upper back pain, or other symptoms discussed in this slide show. People with known heart disease or significant risk factors such as people over age 65, strong family history of heart disease, obesity, smokers, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes should pay extra attention to any possible cardiac symptoms.
Heart Disease Risk Factors
It is important to pay attention to any symptoms that may indicate heart disease. Don’t ignore them or wait for them to go away – see your doctor for testing and diagnosis. Many people mistake heart disease symptoms for heartburn or muscle soreness. If you have any cardiac disease risk factors, including being male, over age 65, have high cholesterol or high blood pressure, are obese, a smoker, diabetic, or have a family history of heart disease you need to pay extra attention to any potential heart disease symptoms.
1. Anxiety One symptom of an impending heart attack can be extreme anxiety. You may feel as if you are having a panic attack and experience shortness of breath, palpitations, chest pain, and dizziness. If you experience these symptoms go to an emergency room right away.
2. Chest Discomfort Chest pain is a typical symptom of a heart attack. However, only about half of all women experiencing a heart attack may have chest pain. In addition, chest pain can be a result of other conditions that are not related to the heart. When chest pain is heart-related it is often centered under the breastbone, slightly to the left of center. It can feel like extreme pressure on the chest, or just an uncomfortable sensation of pressure, squeezing, or fullness. Women may experience minor aches or even a burning sensation.
3. Cough In heart failure, fluid may accumulate in the lungs, causing a persistent cough or wheezing. Sometimes the cough may produce bloody phlegm. If you have a chronic or worsening cough or wheezing that makes it hard to breathe or affects your daily life, see your doctor.
4. Dizziness Heart attacks and heart rhythm abnormalities called arrhythmias can cause dizziness, lightheadedness, and even fainting. Many different conditions can cause these kinds of symptoms, so see a doctor to find out if heart disease is the cause of your dizziness.
5. Fatigue Fatigue is one of those symptoms that can be attributed to many different medical conditions. Sometimes women in particular to experience unusual fatigue during and in the days prior to a heart attack. Heart failure can cause people to feel tired all the time. When you are so fatigued it affects your daily function ion, it is time to see a doctor.
6. Nausea or Lack of Appetite Nausea, indigestion, vomiting, or abdominal swelling can occur during a heart attack. Sometimes the poor circulation due to a weak heart or blocked arteries can cause these symptoms. This is common in women, and often gets worse with activity and improves with rest. If you are experiencing nausea or lack of appetite that follows this pattern, see your doctor.
7. Pain In Other Parts of the Body While chest pain is common in a heart attack, pain may occur in other areas of the body. Many people experience heart attacks as pain that begins in the chest and spreads to the shoulders, arms, back, neck, jaw, or abdomen. Men may experience pain in their left arm during a heart attack; women may experience pain in either arm or between the shoulder blades. The pain may come and go and may be mild or severe. If you experience pain similar to this, go to an emergency department immediately. You may be experiencing a heart attack.
8. Rapid or Irregular Pulse An occasional “skipped” heartbeat may be no cause for concern. But if you have a rapid or irregular heart rate this could be a symptom of a heart attack, heart failure, or an arrhythmia. This rapid or irregular pulse may also be accompanied by weakness, dizziness, or shortness of breath. Seek medical attention immediately – some arrhythmias can lead to stroke, heart failure, or death without prompt medical intervention.
9. Shortness of Breath During a heart attack or heart failure, fluid may leak into the lungs, causing shortness of breath. People may feel breathless even at rest. Shortness of breath can be due to other conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) but it can also be a sign of heart attack or heart failure.
10. Sweating Breaking out into a sudden sweat for no reason is actually a common symptom of a heart attack. Sweating profusely when you don’t have a fever and are not exerting yourself or in a hot environment – especially if accompanied by other symptoms such as lightheadedness, shortness of breath nausea, or chest pain – may be a symptom of a heart attack.
11. Swelling When the heart is weakened it pumps blood less effectively, and this can lead to fluid retention that results in swelling (edema) of the lower extremities or abdomen. Heart failure can also cause sudden weight gain and loss of appetite
12. Weakness Severe and unexplained weakness may be a sign of an impending heart attack. The heart is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs. Blood gets diverted to the most critical organs such as the heart, lungs, and brain, and away from the muscles.
N. B. If you notice any of the symptoms discussed in this slide show, see your doctor or go to an emergency department right away. If you have any risk factors for heart disease it is especially important to pay attention to your body and get any symptoms checked out by a doctor. Getting prompt medical attention may save your life!

Pope declares new feast day devoted to the Virgin Mary
Pope Francis has made the devotion to the Virgin Mary a new fixed celebration in the Roman Catholic calendar. The Vatican published a decree Saturday in which Francis declared that the Mary “Mother of the Church” feast would be celebrated on the Monday following Pentecost. This year, it falls on May 21.The decree said Francis wanted the devotion to “encourage the growth of the maternal sense of the Church in the pastors, religious and faithful, as well as a growth of genuine Marian piety.” History’s first Latin American pope is particularly devoted to Marian piety and frequently refers to the church as “mother.” In 2016, Francis set another feast day for another key woman in Christ’s life, declaring July 22 as the feast of St. Mary Magdalene.
